We have been going to the cottage for several years now and have never had a bad experience. The food is always fresh and the creative dishes always a delight. The wait staff is always pleasant and helpfull. You can't go wrong with chooseing the Cottage.

“Consistantly Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I've visited the cottage many times over the years with both my spouse (our first date and then multiple times afterward) and friends. It's a great place for either dates or a night out for a great meal with friends. The drinks are perfect and the meal options consistantly changing with a few standards. GREAT place to dine, relaxed with an attentive staff and fantastic chef.

“Holly portions!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

It has been at least 7 years from our last visit. The cottage is not in a town center or shoping district so we had forgotten about this gem. As for decor not much has changed in the past few years but the food is great. The portions are huge!! Usually this is to try and make up for substandard flavor but this is not the case here. I will come back and I will tell friends.

“Wow, what a surprisingly wonderful dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

When traveling across state lines for dinner, one never knows what to expect. This is a world class restaurant. Attentive and friendly staff, wonderful food and great value. Yes, when I am in Connecticut again, I would go and will suggest it. Truly a great evening!

“dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The food was good and my mother-in-law especially liked her crab cake. My husband loved the stuffed pork chop.
